Emotional moment there for the English Anthem as the camera went up the line up
Jordan Pickford : “God Save Our Gracious Queen….”
Dele Alli : “Long live our noble queen…”
Harry Maguire : “God Save Our Queen…”
Declan Rice : “IT’S JUST A BROAD BLACK BRIMMER…” #ENGCZE

Disgusting scenes at Wembley as the Czech fans make 'it was straight at him' gestures during the Gordon Banks tributes. #ENGCZE

Enjoy this – it's the only increase in the value of Sterling we're going to see for a while. #ENGCZE

Raheem would have scored 4 goals but for Brexit.

I thought that fifth goal was cruel. Kalas, in fact. #ENGCZE

A momentous night for #BristolCity.
Tomas Kalas has become the first City player to score for England since John Atyeo in 1957. #ENGCZE

Gary, i’d maybe hold back till they’ve faced the might of Kazakhstan- they’ve been brushing away some World Cup contenders of late.
